Benfield named Player of the Week

Cloudland senior Zac Benfield had a solid night’s work on Friday night. For the effort, we have named him the Applebee’s of Elizabethton Player of the Week for Week 4.

In Friday’s game, Benfield tallied 204 yards and a touchdown on just six carries to earn the honor. The touchdown Benfield recorded was a 63-yard run, and averaged 34 yards per carry. Cloudland dispatched Unaka 47-0 to improve to 5-0.

Cloudland will return to action on Friday as they travel to Kingsport to face Tri-Cities Christian. The Highlanders are ranked second in the Class A AP Prep Poll.

Other honorees of the Applebee’s of Elizabethton Player of the Week this season include Cloudland’s Colby Birchfield, Hampton’s Jerry Lunsford and Coby Jones and Elizabethton’s Ethan Thomas.
